Location Mobile Hotspot for Another Carrier

Requirements:
  • Root
  • SuperUser
  • ES Explorer

Description:
Resolves that annoying "Mobile data is not avaible or invalid SIM" when enabled Mobile Hotspot.



Procedure:

Remove the Oldest "TetheringProvision.apk" and "TetheringProvision.odex" in system/app and replace with "TetheringProvision.apk" in: system/app
check and set permission rw-r--r--

Pros: Work with another Carrier.
Cons: Maybe not work well for at&t carrier, FC in ART Mode.

note: I'll post it in case someone needs it.

Thanks for posting this. I installed the APK but can't find the app anywhere. It doesn't show up under settings. Any clue as to what i can do to make this show up? Thanks so much.

You do not use the apk directly. The regular tethering app runs the provision check app, which asks at&t if your account is allowed to tether, itself. This replacement version just always says to allow the tethering.

Mine is gone from the settings menu somehow. Thanks for the response though.

Hi Guys, I'm a noobe. I try to erase the Apps but it gives an Error, Do you have any other tip or any guide based on your experiences?

Yes, I rooted the phone with towolroot and it worked. The phone is an S5 G900a ATT version but it is in a different network than ATT, I'm based in Latin America. I have install superuser and it gives permission to ES explorer but it does not remove the app when I ask it to. Also I have try to replace it but I still have the same error.

Another noobe question, how do you give permission for rw-r--r--?

Thanks for the help.
